The world was first introduced to the magical and exciting world of Harry Potter 20 years ago today! Oh how time flies…does anyone else feel old now?
On June 26, 1997 Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone hit bookshelves all across the globe, and began the thrilling journey that kept us on the edge of our seats through seven books and eight blockbuster films.
In honor of this milestone, there are a couple fun, cute features for you to play with on social media.
If you type Harry Potter into your status it will turn red. Slytherin will turn green, Gryffindor red, Ravenclaw will appear blue and Hufflepuff a pretty yellowish gold.
But the colors are only part of the fun. If you or your friends click on any of those words (works on a PC and your hand held device!) a magic wand will appear.
The wand then shoots out some colorful magic for you to enjoy!
Facebook isn’t the only one getting in on the fun! Type #HarryPotter20 on Twitter and this adorable little emoji will appear:
Harry Potter specs complete with his scar! love it.
Hsppy 20th, Harry Potter!
20 years ago today a world that I had lived in alone was suddenly open to others. It’s been wonderful. Thank you.#HarryPotter20
